A sample pack from Upton – I have been interested in trying a few different Ceylon teas lately as I think I’ve been missing out on the good stuff all these years. :)
I steeped this via regular infuser mug method. I really needed something to wake me up this morning so I’m hoping this will be a good choice. I’m definitely getting some nice cocoa and caramel notes out of this one. Rose aroma? hmmm. Perhaps. Every so slightly.
I found this tea to be a bit on the astringent side (but not bitter). I did seem to enjoy it more when I added soymilk to it. Not the best ceylon I’ve ever had, but certainly a solid choice for the morning time.
